WIW: Elephants Never Looked So Good

Elephant print shorts. Need I say more? 
I'm absolutely in love with these shorts! I could have never imagined elephants being so cute. Well except for Dumbo. But these shorts were a must-have as soon as I laid my eyes on them. And, yes, I may be a little animal print crazy, seahorses now elephants. But I can't seem to help myself when they look so darn good on. 
I am so lucky to have the bestest friend ever. Since these shorts have been sold out online pretty much since Banana Republic launched the collection I didn't think it was going to be possible to get my hands on them. But thanks to my BFF, Liz, I was able to get these. So if you're still looking for these there are some stores out there that do still have these Milly Collection shorts. And a little tidbit , if they're out of your size in a regular try on a pair of petites in the next size up from your regular size. This was a little tip from the Banana Republic rep. Don't do this with pants but shorts are called shorts for a reason, so a smidge shorter in the inseam won't do any harm.
What makes these shorts so amazing, is that the print isn't as overwhelming as you would imagine elephant printed anything could be. The colors are neutral and makes it an easy piece to mix and match with all sorts of tops even printed ones. Since I love color I chose to pair the shorts with some pinks and a bright bag. But I could easily imagine these shorts paired with a nice pair of black pumps and clutch for dressier affairs.
